      Thank you Steph! I don’t think I would mind it, retirement-wise. I’m tired of the bustle and traffic here, and the heat. Joe says maybe Oregon for the summers. I’d like to see it when it’s raining. Who knows?

      It is definitely worth a trip!

    What a glorious essay! Of course, the fifth grade teacher in me (which is most of who I am) is completely overwhelmed with joy over your reunion and rekindled relationship with Mr. Smith. To look from the outside and see the love, thirty-something years later, makes me so happy. Let’s all live in Oregon when we retire, live close enough for frequent dinners and fellowship, and have permission to Kevorkian each other if the need arises! Cheers to a wonderful summer and best wishes for your new adventure.

      I love this idea! And the Kevorkian treatment is legal in Oregon. I’m sure that legalized marijuana is next. It’s decided, then; Oregon is the perfect state to retire in! All former students will be welcome for visits!

      As long as the former students are over 40 years of age! Let’s have standards, Danny.
